Acceleware and Vector Fields Partner to Accelerate Microwave Design

    Allows Electromagnetic Equipment Designers to Simulate Performance Up to
    20X Faster

    CALGARY and AURORA, IL, June 17 /CNW/ - Acceleware(R) Corp. (TSXV: AXE),
a leading developer of high performance computing applications, and Vector
Fields, a world leader in electromagnetic modeling software, today announced a
partnership to accelerate microwave design by combining Vector Fields'
Concerto automation software package with Acceleware's FDTD Accelerator
    "Our partnership with Vector Fields allows Acceleware to leverage another
software channel partner to further penetrate the electromagnetic simulations
market, providing a significant boost in simulation speed that allows users to
push the boundaries of innovation," said Sean Krakiwsky, President & CEO,
Acceleware Corp. "As frequency simulation becomes more complex our partnership
will provide the benefit of superior quality product design to the broader
    Vector Fields produces software for modeling and analyzing
electromagnetic equipment and effects; Acceleware develops the fastest
electromagnetic solver technology available on the market. Together, the
technologies will offer RF engineers the tools they need to experience a 20X
performance increase in their electromagnetic simulations - shortening design
cycles while greatly increasing the integrity of product design and safety.
    "Model sizes are getting bigger as a result of generic design trends such
as a move to higher frequencies, and more complex radio systems and antennas,"
said Vector Fields' Dr. Kevin Ward. "But project timescales are going the
other way, putting developers under enormous pressure. Acceleware-boosted
Concerto simulation gives developers an edge to get right-first-time ideas
produced very early in market cycles."
    Vector Fields' Concerto provides a comprehensive
design-simulate-analyze-optimize tool chain for high-frequency electromagnetic
applications. Two-dimensional or three-dimensional component or system models
can be created using an integrated geometric modeler, or imported from CAD
programs. The package's applications span the high frequency spectrum and
include antennas, waveguides, cavities and resonators, filters, connectors,
microwave heating, and radar systems.
    Acceleware's Accelerator(TM) Card and ClusterInABox(TM) products harness
the parallel processing power of NVIDIA's(R) GPU Computing architecture, that
pairs with Vector Fields' Concerto software to offer a turnkey solution for
extremely fast electromagnetic simulation. This solution is delivered as a
"desk-side supercomputer" that is simple to manage, and available on-demand
for engineers.


    Concerto is available immediately through Vector Fields. For more

and ClusterInABox(TM) workstation are available for purchase directly from
Acceleware. For more information please visit
